Ex-Darkness member Frankie Poullain has launched an attack on his former bandâ€™s latest single.
The dumped bassist believes that in tackling drugs â€˜One Way Ticketâ€™ â€œinsultsâ€ people with narcotics addictions.
He ranted: â€œAs for Justinâ€™s claim the song is all about redemption, itâ€™s hardly Marvin Gaye or Bob Marley now, is it? I think itâ€™s insulting to people with real difficulties.â€
Speaking about Justin Hawkinsâ€™ character, he continued to the nme: â€œJustin? A mega megalomaniac? No, not really, heâ€™s just a victim of the lifestyle.
â€œUnless you were in the druggy clique or the fawning circle of ass-kissers, youâ€™d find yourself persona non grata. Hence Iâ€™m now a free agent.â€
And you donâ€™t sound bitter at all do you Frankie?
